Exploring DeFi’s Potential.
For the uninitiated, UniLend is a permission-less decentralized protocol. It consolidates spot trading functionality with lending and borrowing services within the same platform. Moreover, a user can list any ERC20 token on UniLend. Thus, this unlocks the door to decentralized lending, trading, and borrowing for any Ethereum-based asset. UniLend is actively investigating support for other blockchains. The UniLend team elucidates that providing more cryptocurrencies to compete in the DeFi free market via permission-less listings could enhance the DeFi ecosystem’s liquidity.
UniLend Finance Token (UFT), the native utility token of the UniLend platform, is a transferable illustration of attributed functions. UFT will perform a significant role in the functioning of the UniLend platform. However, it is intended to be used singly as the primary utility token on the platform.
We believe the next evolution in DeFi is the inclusion of not only any participant but the inclusion of any asset which users wish to utilize for DeFi. UniLend is making this a reality, and our progress on all fronts is going strong. Together with our strong community and partner network, we’re well on the way to unlocking the true potential of decentralized finance.Chandresh Aharwar, the co-founder and CEO of UniLend
UniLend liquidity providers profit from a percentage of the fees created from borrowing and trading services. Moreover, they will also receive UFT tokens via liquidity mining. The users utilizing UniLend protocol will also be rewarded for participation with UFT governance tokens.
